HEALTHY RIVERS & REGIONAL WATER

The Murray Darling Basin is on the brink of ecological collapse after the worst drought on record and decades of mismanagement by Liberal-National and Labor governments. 

Due to drought and climate change we have seen rivers run dry, mass fish kills and devastated regional communities on the brink of running out of water. 

The Murray Darling Basin plan was introduced to avert ecological disaster in the basin but it has been subverted by the National Party and their corporate irrigator mates. 

The Murray Darling is also under threat from a National Party plan to fast track three new dam projects that will see 770 gigalitres taken out of the basin. 

We must reform the management of the Murray Darling Basin and return water to the environment and to regional communities.
